Christian Bale, Star of the Dark Knight, Went Ballistic on the Director of Photography [DP] when the DP made a mistake on the set of a new movie. Someone caught the audio of it and now a Youtube Hip-Hop remix was made of it. Well... My Guess is He'll Deny It Was Him... Like He Did when he was arrested For Assault and Denied Allegations By Mother and Sister in July 2008. Some of you are saying, but T why do you give a damn? Three reasons:

#1. After hearing all the fans of Christian Bale say how much they like his work, even after this incident...this whole scenario reminds me of when Trent Lott made remarks a few years ago at the birthday party of Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. Thurmond ran for president of the USA in 1948 on the Dixiecrat (or States' Rights) ticket. Lott said: "When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over the years, either."

Thurmond had based his presidential campaign largely on an explicit racial segregation platform. I have seen the videos of Strom Thurmond and they basically go like this over and over: "The Niggers Will never come into our schools!!!" with lots of crowds cheering happily and wildly. Trent Lott had to resign from his political position afterwards and yet thousands of people said 'it was an isolated incident and you're all blowing it out of proportion.' It wasn't an isolated incident and Lott had spoke about his love for Strom Thurmond many, many times in public and worse, voted on a great deal of racially oppressive legislation like voting against renewal of the Voting Rights Act, voting against the continuation of the Civil Rights Act and opposed the Martin Luther King Holiday. Some of you are saying how is this related to Christian Bale, T, you long-winded bastard? Well, this was farrrrrrr from Christian Bale's first time doing this as you will read in this exhaustive article and I don't care if its Trent Lott in Dc or Christian Bale in Hollywood....hatred is hatred... and when it is exposed... don't let it keep hiding and growing like mold threatening to overtake your house.

#2. In the book Free Culture, Lawrence Lessig argues that the resignation of Lott would not have occurred had it not been for the effect of Internet blogs. He states that although the story "disappear[ed] from the mainstream press within forty-eight hours", "bloggers kept researching the story" until, "[f]inally, the story broke back into the mainstream press." Yea, well I hope bloggers keep passing this story around so that that the hundreds of thousands of extras and non-multimillionaire movie personnel get better treatment from hateful lunatics like Christian Bale. The incidents of Multimillionaire actors going ballistic on lesser paid people affilaited with the movie industry is not new... the only thing new is it was caught on tape... in more than one incident as you will find out below.

#3. Cuz' I once worked on a movie set, and I saw the little guys and extras get treated like the crap that the crap would take in the bathroom. Wow. Now I have a feeling (a hope) after this makes it way across the internet (and it is indeed all over the place (rightly so)... multimillion dollar actors will not go ballistic on non-actors and extras as fast. Thats just my guess. Unless they love tons of bad publicity and all it can do for you... as it has done for George Michael, Pee-Wee Herman and the rest of the D-List gang. FUCK FUCK fucking fucky fuck (as Christian Bale would say *happy laughter*), I still think people were too hard on Pee Wee! *happy laughter*

On theflipside, if Christian Bale does not lose status because of this... then what? Next time he'll physically hurt someone... or some other actor will see he got away with it or do worse.

Here is a small transcript of Christian Bale's tirade:

"Fuck fuck fucking fuck fuck fucking FUCK FUCK fucking fucky fuck!!! You fucking fuck fucker!!! Who the fuck do you think you are? Do you know who the fuck I am?! Fuck fuck fuck, fuck fuck, to the fuck of the fucking fuck! FUCK! What the fuck?! Fucking fuckity fuck fuck. I am the Mayor of Fuckington and you are a fucking fuck fuckerfuck! Have you ever heard anyone say fuck so much?! I am LORD FUCK, you fucking fucker! And don't fucking forget it!"

The best part of the remix is random Barbra Streisand F-Bombs! Especially when ya' used to hearing her do love songs and show tunes! *happy laughter* Teenagers will play this and their parents will be that Barbra Streisand? *happy laughter* Barbara....*singing a love song*...... "people...people who who need people..are the luckiest fuckin' people..."

NEW Remixes...with Christian Bale are already available...

The Mae Shi - "R U Professional" - CHRISTIAN BALE Tribute

I don't like the above one too much (read - super lame)...

..but the below one is indeed a great follow up to the original! ;)

Though I must admit the original one is funnier because this below one you can actually hear the hatred in his voice because it is not cut up.

Christian Bale flips out [Drum And Bass Remix.]
Found below:

I'm hoping after this he donates a crap load of funds to a charity anger management course.

Let me just clear up. something...

The “R U Professional,” remix is (partially) from a prior (surprise, this is not the first time! *happy laughter*) ...on-set blowup that reportedly took place in July 2008 was reported that the nearly four-minute verbal beat down took place just a few days after “The Dark Knight” star was arrested and accused of assaulting his mother and sister in London; Bale was eventually cleared in the case.

Not his fault, again, I suspect? *happy laughter*

That dude has a smoooooooooooooooooooooooooth publicist, agent or good luck leprechaun who keeps bailing him out. <----I was so tempted to give a 'Bale' joke there. :)

"Seriously man, We're fuckin' done professionally" is now on T-Shirts I hear! *happy laughter*

Oh my.

*happy laughter*

Love for the people,


In the interest of true social justice and equality...I want to share the thoughts of Harry, who I do believe kisses the ass of actors. Be sure to (take note of the giant flashing Hollywood ads) on his popular Hollywood website, 'Ain't It Cool News' and who spoke up for Christian Bale and I'll let all of you decide if the tirade was justified...uhh...keeping the assault charges on his Mom and sister in mind as well. Oh, and be sure to listen to the end of the remix when he threatens the guy's job. No just anger, threats and anger. I don't know which one is more fascinating, the Christian Bla eHip Hop Remix... or the 'Ain't It Cool news' statement defending Bale with the Legendary line: "I know this because I happen to be somewhere where someone that was there that day and for the shoot is."

Good days my friend!


Hey folks, Harry here... I'm getting slammed with assloads of people angry at me for not posting the Bale explosion from the set of McG's TERMINATOR: SALVATION. Well, first off - there's a real simple reason. It isn't news. And it certainly isn't cool news. It is a moment in a man's life taken completely out of context and most likely leaked to personally embarrass Christian Bale.

Now, I know what a lot of you are thinking... There's no excuse for a temper tantrum like that to ever occur and if you are going to act that way, you deserve to be embarrassed by your own actions.

Except, you want to hear the REALITY behind that clip?

I know this because I happen to be somewhere where someone that was there that day and for the shoot is. And this person isn't a publicist, nor are they invested in Bale's career. They're just someone that thinks it is absolute bullshit that this moment in Bale's life is being aired and that the real story should get out there.

The DP on TERMINATOR SALVATION, Shane Hurlbut, is a apparently a light tweaker. He's a fairly young DP and likes to fiddle with his lights on set during action, which is a big "NO NO" on most productions unless worked out in advance with performers. But apparently Shane was a pretty unrepentant light tweaker.

The scene in question, was a very emotional and tough scene between Christian Bale and Bryce Howard. A scene that required soul bearing and a deep level of immersive concentration. The sort of scene where everyone on set knows not to get in anyone's eye lines, and definitely not to move lights around while FILMING. You lock that shit down before the scene starts.

Bale had indeed warned the DP on multiple occasions about messing with lights while the cameras were rolling, and Bale was in the midst of a painful scene with Bryce, what was described to me as being the emotional center of the film and his character for the film.

Now, the reason I know all of this is because the person that was there, felt that it should be made perfectly clear that Christian Bale was the utmost gentleman and cool guy on set. And the DP really was doing something that professional DPs with experience just don't do. Not during a performance.

You don't need me to give you a link, it's all over the internet, I just felt that you should know what really went down - and that this particular outburst did indeed modify the DP's behavior - and for future DPs. Fuck with the lights before and after your actors are acting. Not during.

I stay out of the 'personal gossip' arena because frankly... can you imagine your personal shit aired for all to see. None of us are perfect, and certainly we have all sinned to some degree. Actors, Actresses, Celebrities and the people exploited on sites like TMZ. They're human beings that I personally feel are owed the same inalienable rights that the rest of us hold dear.

Can you imagine cameras documenting your every attempted private moment. This moment was something that occurred in the heat of a moment on set between professionals. The audio is so clear on Christian, that it's obvious a mike was on him or a foot and a half above him. These are the sorts of moments that are private affairs. Yet somehow, because he's an actor. We feel it's permissable to air his dirty laundry. It isn't our business. It isn't anybody's fucking business. Will this affect TERMINATOR SALVATION? Will this give us insight into his character? Only because I found some details out, do we know it was in the midst of a scene between him and Bryce Howard. But that's accidental... and certainly hasn't been revealed by CNN or any other media, because they just run the clip with BEEPS. Is it funny? I suppose it may be. It allows regular people to laugh, point fingers and call someone other than themselves an ASSHOLE. But frankly, I find it disgusting. It's the exact thing that I made AICN to not be about. I wrote this, not to create an endless TALKBACK, but to express my opinion on the spreading of stories like this and making Christian look bad, when he isn't.


T, here again.
Be sure to read all the people defend Bale and on the other side...people in the Hollywood tell 'Harry hollywood' what they think of him in the comment section to Harry Hollywood's article. I love Harry, as I love all people, but ya' need to stop kissin' butt, bro.
